Thanks for your query.

The pain you experience in the groin after playing golf clearly indicates sprain in the muscles involved in the required action.The muscles like gluteus, Psoas, conjoint tendon etc are involved.

Daily stretching of those muscles would reduce the problem over time and finally disappear.

I have provided you a link below, which shows a series of videos of typical hip exercises.

If you have pain in the testis associated with the pain in the groin then the cause would be something different.The sudden contraction in the conjoint tendon pulls the testis up with a sudden jerk this induces mild torsion in the testis and cause pain.If this is the case then you may have to be examined by a surgeon.

Hope I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
